We've recently been invited to write a chapter for an upcoming book: The Future of HIV-1 Therapeutics. Our chapter focuses on structure-based drug design, and discusses the benefits of "in silico" modeling for dramatically expanding the scope and effectiveness of structure-based research. We pay particular attention to the benefits of the large-scale computation network that we found in World Community Grid.

Finding new avenues to attack Ebola

Efforts to simulate matches between candidate compounds and one key Ebola virus protein are largely complete. Simulations of matches against another, newly discovered target protein are beginning now. Even as simulation work continues, the team is beginning to analyze these results and home in on compounds that could form the basis for effective new drugs against Ebola and other related diseases. Thanks to your help, and a new grant, the work is proceeding well.

2015 Fundraiser for Milky Way Research

Hello Everyone,

Our fundraising campaign kicks off today. If you are willing and able to financially support Milky Way research (I know many of you already support us with your computations), we would really appreciate it! Click the link to find a letter, video, budget, and a description of our thank-you gifts. The goal seems daunting, but donations of $5, $10, or $20 really do add up and make a difference. If you can afford $100, then we will send you a very nice astronomer-designed T-shirt as a token of our appreciation.

For more information take a look at our fundraiser page here.

Second Einstein@Home newsletter

Dear Einstein@Home volunteers,

the five-year upgrade of the LIGO detectors has been completed and we are a large step closer to the first direct detection of gravitational waves, which will mark the beginning of a new era of astronomy. As we are writing this newsletter, Advanced LIGO is beginning its first observation run “O1” after an extensive comissioning phase and a series of “engineering runs”. The Einstein@Home team is truly excited and is looking forward to the most sensitive gravitational-wave data ever recorded.

In the first week of September more than 200 gravitational-wave scientists from the LIGO Virgo Scientific Collaboration gathered in Budapest for their fall meeting. Many Einstein@Home team members were present and reported on their ongoing gravitational-wave searches. During the meeting, the seventh issue of the LIGO Magazine was published, featuring a four page article on Einstein@Home. You can read it for free at [1].

Our second newsletter this year features news from the project administration and updates from our three searches for rapidly rotating neutron stars (through gravitational waves, radio waves, and gamma rays). We are very happy to report three new discoveries! One was made in data from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, and three were made in data from the Arecibo Radio Telescope. See below for more details on the discoveries.

Note that we are advertising a position for an Einstein@Home computational scientist at UWM in Milwaukee [2]. If you have the required skills and interest, please apply!
